Commerce and Global Studies - B2006

This exciting double degree course gives you the opportunity to explore global cultures, learn the intricacies of global economies, develop your leadership skills and combine your studies with overseas travel.

Studying both Commerce and Global Studies will enable you to explore from a multidisciplinary perspective how economic, political, social and technological decisions are made across the world.

You will learn about the challenges facing all cultures and communities, such as peace and conflict; the rich-poor gap; and crime and justice, and be able to combine these with an understanding of the commercial realities all countries face.

This course leads to two separate degrees:

  • Bachelor of Commerce, and
  • Bachelor of Global Studies.

You will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in your chosen work.

While your career options will depend on Commerce majors and the Global Studies specialisation that you choose, the double degree course will open up a diverse range of opportunities. Our graduates work in a range of domestic and international roles within governments, not-for-profit organisations and corporations that focus on international trade.

Wherever your choices may lead, a degree in Commerce and another in Global Studies will give you versatile and transferable skills that are relevant to any industry. You will acquire the skills that employers are looking for, such as communication, teamwork, research, critical thinking and cultural sensitivity - and you'll be able to draw on cross-disciplinary perspectives to thrive in a broad range of settings.
